  3. copying Excel tabs between files, online

    Please implement tabs copying between files. This is a very useful feature, e.g. present in GSheets. Thank you.

  8. Each excel online file should accept more than one form responses into difference sheet tabs

    Each excel file is capable of catching responses from only one form. It would be better if one excel file can catch the responses from multiple forms like google sheets.

  10. i should be able to upload a sheet as Cntrl+V with large data is causing crash to sharepoint online file.

    Suppose i have a share-point online doc.
    I have a huge data sheet on my local drive.
    Provide a facility to upload this sheet alone to online existing doc.

    e.g i want to upload "sheet-6"(local copy) to abc.xlsx (online doc.)

  11. Seamlessly import a range / sheet from another workbook(s) online.

    Would be great to have an "Import range / sheet" functionality in Excel online that would import data from one online spreadsheet (or multiple spreadsheets) to another real time.
    Ex. Say I work for a Global company. Countries have to update project sheets on a weekly basis. They cannot see other countries information but I need to be able to. Instead of having to check each individual sheet, it would be nice to be able to import the real time data into a master file (view only). That way I can track their progress easily by only having to check…

  14. Import multiple text files into separate sheets with Legacy Text Import.

    Legacy Text import is important, though laboriously intense with multiple text files. Consider adding a feature to import multiple text files of L3 structure (structured/machine readable) with an option of multiple sheets. Recording a macro for this would be possible, of course, but with a product so mature why? Also, the new text import and coloring is particularly nasty and causes palpitations.

  15. Power Query: Make it easier to connect to files on OneDrive and SharePoint

    Connecting to Excel files stored on OneDrive and SharePoint is a difficult and confusing experience. While it is possible, it is far too difficult.

    As more and more move to working in an online environment we need a simple way of connecting.

  16. Stock Data: update / refresh data automatically

    Please keep the stock data automatically up to date without the need to manually refresh it (like in Google Sheets =googlefinance).

  20. Stop automatically linking when copying data!

    Excel frequently freezes when looking for phantom links that are inserted when I copy over data from a sharepoint saved file to my local machine. Please make the default a clean data copy with no tie to the original source, as excel freezes when searching through linked files linked to other files linked to other files that don't exist...it's like sharepoint cancer for excel :(
